How to get an extraordinary shot in an ordinary spot!

One way to noticed the extraordinary things around you is to focus on detail. While I was walking around Denver, I noticed all the flower beds and thought nothing of them. It was spring time and they were everywhere. However, once I got done to their level and looked closer, I noticed more detail and loved how the shots came out. By adding bokeh, and getting close to the ground, I was able to get some extraordinary shots in an ordinary spot.

Here are the two different shots I got, and what they look like from farther away.

This idea has been done in many ways. One of my favorites belongs to Douglas Phan.
